So Hy-Vee was out of drinking water so I got spring water. I used to live near a spring that came out of the Ogallala aquifer and there was a bottled water distributor in town who sold it and that water was pretty good. I grew up with my family’s own aquifer ground water well. That water is prime.
The Hv-Vee spring water tastes like Des Moines tap water. At least this jug does; maybe it’s a bottling mistake. I’m a connoi-sewer about bad city water.
I was just in the Catholic mental hospital again over this Thanksgiving for not following my outpatient order. (not taking my involuntary shot) So I did this fractal coloring in arts and crafts group and when I got out I animated it.
I have schizoaffective and a force med outpatient order even though there is no possible real way to pharmaceutically treat thought and behavior in science.
Here is a list of the basic advice that most avid coffee drinkers will tell you if you are just getting into coffee or you are bad at coffee.
- Make sure to clean your coffee maker once a month by running a pot of 1 part water and 1 part distilled white vinegar through an empty filter, pause brewing about halfway for 20 minutes, followed by a pot of plain water through an empty filter. This keeps it from getting moldy.
- City water makes for bad coffee too. A gallon of drinking water is usually about a dollar at a good grocery store. Make coffee with that.
- Don’t leave it on the burner too long. It can overcook the coffee and make it taste bad that way too.
- If you still make bad coffee after this short checklist, buy better grounds or just get the beans and grind your own. (I don’t grind my own, but I’ve read nice things.)
